Proceeds from the annual Artsclamation! art sale benefit a variety of programs, services and equipment needs at Peninsula. Past events have funded an outdoor respite garden and activity areas at the hospital, transport vans for outpatient therapy groups, inpatient pediatric play areas, and comfort rooms for patients in crisis.

What is Artsclamation: 

Artists working with a variety of media are invited to participate in Artsclamation!each year. Members of the Artsclamation! leadership committee then review submissions and select artists to invite to the show. Approximately 48 artists, including painters, photographers, jewelers, fiber artists, woodworkers and sculptors participate in each year’s show. A percentage of each artist’s sales is donated to Peninsula.

One artist is selected each year as Featured Artist for the show. A Featured Piece, created by that artist, is donated to Peninsula, used in promotional materials for the event, and auctioned to the highest bidder at the Preview Party. Artists interested in participating in Artsclamation! should select the artist menue for more information on the event’s request for submission process and online artist application.
